This is a great spot to stay for Civil War battle site travelers. Frederick is only 35 miles from the mother of all Civil War sites - Gettysburg. Only 22 miles from Antietam (Sharpsburg, MD) and 20 miles from Harpers Ferry. Also well within reach are Manassas (Battle of Bull Run I and II) and Fredericksburg, VA. Those sites are about an hour and an hour and a half away respectively, from this location. Not to mention the fact that the hotel is only a couple of miles from the Monocacy battlefield and the spot where Union troops found Order 191, giving them Lee's battle plans which led to the collision at Antietam.
Frederick offers a great spot to "retreat" from the crowds at the battle sites. There are plenty of good spots to eat and enjoy a cold refreshment.
The hotel itself employs a very friendly and helpful staff, has a full kitchen and bar and is reasonably priced.
